When was the last time you felt…

Many of my patients and clients hold deep feelings of shame and betrayal in their bodies.

I understand this feeling more than you might realize…

Today, I use my experience to look for the root cause: what I like to call “the deepest why.” 

That means I look at my patient’s lifestyle, what they’ve been eating, what they’ve been exposed to and their mindset.

I also want to know about their heart, their fears and the places inside that feel unheard, unseen and unloved. 

I ask the deeper questions that their conventional doctors just won’t ask.  

I use functional medicine labs if needed especially when conventional labs look normal to get to the root cause of their symptoms. 

The tools for radical self-healing

What is functional medicine?

Compared to conventional (allopathic) medicine, functional medicine is built on the foundation that the body has an innate ability to heal itself. 

Functional Medicine focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause(s) that create symptoms, instead of just managing symptoms with medications. 

Conventional medicine is great at addressing acute and urgent medical needs like acute trauma, broken bones, heart attacks, acute infections and other medical emergencies. 

When it comes to chronic, recurrent health conditions though, Functional and Conventional Medicine are quite different in their approach.

A great way to understand the difference between the two is to imagine a leaky roof. 

Many conventional doctors and their patients are locked into a never-ending cycle of cleaning up the “wet patches” on the floor from the leaky roof (in other words: pills and medications for specific symptoms), but never go deep enough in their treatment plan or testing to find out why the roof is leaking. 

A Functional Medicine practitioner is trained to find out exactly why the roof is leaking in the first place, so we can patch up the holes and avoid the “wet patches” on the floor (in other words: your symptoms)
